Language:Catalan, English, Spanish
Jaime Alguersuari is a former Spanish motor racing driver, currently a music producer and DJ. In 2009, Jaime Alguersuari debuted in Formula 1 to pursue his dream of becoming world champion. He made his debut in the Hungarian Grand Prix, becoming the youngest driver to start a career in this category at the age of 19. He competed with the Toro Rosso team and continued in the top category of this sport until 2013. After that, he decided to leave the circuits and focused on the world of electronic music.
Pursuing the dream of playing music all over the world, Jaime Alguersuari reinvented himself as a producer and DJ, under his alter ego DJ Squire. His career in music led Alguersuari to travel the world performing at the most emblematic clubs and cities.
Jaime Alguersuari advocates for constant reinvention and encourages others to set out new objectives and conquer new dreams. Alguersuari has his own recording studio in Barcelona and leads the Barcelona Music Conference in 2010. His album Organic topped the iTunes album list five days after its release.
Through his conferences, Jaime Alguersuari conveys a positive attitude and gratitude, lessons he acquired after discarding his initial dream of sports competition. Pursuing passions and abandoning conformism are just some of the lessons he shares. Alguersuari proposes questions such as "what do you want to do with your life?", "what are you passionate about?", "where are you going?” in order to explore new life scenarios.
Jaime Alguersuari is also the author of the book "Reinvéntate: Cómo pasé de la Fórmula 1 a la música" (Reinvent yourself: How I went from Formula 1 to music), in which he shares his change of course after 17 years devoted to sports. The book reveals how he overcame the different phases of a path that led him to his new life.
